Following the Breadcrumbs XVI : Stor e Telling January February 2005

Han en Grietje
Richard Scholz, 1905

I am traveling back in time and updating all of my Stor e Telling columns for Storytelling Magazine since 2002 I have checked all of the links, updated those that have new URL's and deleted others that have found their way to the Internet graveyard.I will continue to update the columns and post them on my blog until all of the breadcrumbs lead to the end of 2006. At the end of the blog you will find links to the columns from 2002 - 2004 and 2007 - 2013. I continue to write for Storytelling Magazine but will not be adding current columns until the following year. If you want immediate access to the newest websites, consider becoming a member of the National Storytelling Network and support the arts!

Please feel free to comment on the blog and let me know if you find this useful.

An easy to understand chart to help answer the “public domain” question.

The link below was not part of this 2005 Stor e Telling column. However, since the above site is related to Public Domain works I thought I would add this information from a blog post I wrote in 2012.
